BRITAIN’S top secret UFO files are set to be released within months shedding lighting on alien encounters across the UK, the government have confirmed.
The government has confirmed classified documents detailing evidence of UFO sightings and abductions contain nearly 50 years of information about alien experiences.
Spooks have kept the files under wraps for the past five decades – but now UFO hunters are rejoicing as the files are on the verge of release.
The National Archives have confirmed the UFO document dubbed the “real life X-files” will be released after the General Election on June 8.
The UFO dossier is understood to contain around 18 files detailing alleged encounters and experiences involving alien life.
It will contain information relating the the Rendlesham Forest incident – Britain’s most infamous UFO encounter – which has been likened to the UK”s Roswell.
Military men at the twin bases of RAF Bentwaters and RAF Woodbridge in Suffolk experienced “alien” activity over a number of nights and encountered a “triangle shaped craft” in the woods
Conspiracy theorists have claimed the delays in releasing the files have been a cover-up – but archivists have been unable to publish them due to the election.
Documents were meant to be released in 2013, but a number of the files were withheld for release in March.
But their release has been delayed again due to Prime Minister Theresa May calling an election.
While UFO hunters are waiting with baited breath for the files, experts have downplayed their release.
Nick Pope, an expert who worked as the Ministry of Defence’s UFO investigator for 15 years, said: “There’s no smoking gun in these files that will confirm the existence of aliens, but there are plenty of fascinating UFO reports and MoD policy documents, so these really are the real-life X-Files.”
He told the Mail: “The delay has been a comedy of errors though, I think it’s more bureaucracy than conspiracy.”
A spokesman for the National Archives told UFO news website Grenzwissenschaft-aktuell: “Due to the upcoming election here in the UK and the rules relating to the government departments during the pre-election period, the files will not be released until after the election.”
Scientists have never proved the existence of alien-life – but remain hopeful with new discoveries such as Earth-like planet Proxima B.
